June 12, 2016 : World Day Against Child Labour
In order to highlight World Day Against Child Labour, join an event organised by Children’s Care International (CCI) and FEM International, on June 12, 2016, at Hydro-Québec Park (next to the Centre for Sustainable Development / Maison du développement durable) on Sainte-Catherine Street West. It intends to:
- Show the various forms that child labour can take, through the use of various educational materials; and
- Spotlight purchasing alternatives that consumers can adopt to effectively fight against child labour (such as ethical fashion, fair trade, ….).
There will be contests with prizes, as well as free tastings of Fair Trade products showing that there are many ways to produce goods responsibly.
